There are few civil society organisations (CSOs) in Vanuatu that have a specific anti-corruption mandate, although many of them do address issues of governance more generally. CSOs face challenges due to the general issue of limited human resource capacity within Vanuatu. The geographical nature of Vanuatu also makes it difficult for NGOs to effectively and sustainably engage with communities throughout the country or to mobilise the public to demand that government is held accountable for its actions. Another issue which makes it difficult for CSOs to effectively fulfil their role within the national integrity system is that there is no forum within which CSOs and government can engage. Internal governance mechanisms are variable, and very much depend upon the individual CSO. This is another area which needs strengthening across the entire CSO sector.
